Dr. Artman teaches courses on a variety of topics connected with religious identity, ethnicity and nationalism, and politics in the former Soviet Union and Central Asia.

Currently, he is teaching ITS 201-Introduction to International Studies, ITS 302-Problems of Non-Western Societies, and ITS 402-Eurasian Geopolitics. Past courses have covered topics such as Islamic political movements, nationalism, and genocide.


Dr. Artman's research focuses broadly on the intersection of religion, identity, and politics. His recent work, which has been supported by an IREX research fellowship, explores the relationship between Islam, the state, and national identity in the Kyrgyz Republic.

Dr. Artman's work has been appeared in journals including Geopolitics, Europe-Asia Studies, Central Asian Affairs, and Territory, Politics, Governance, as well as in the Brill Vocabulary for the Study of Religion. Recent publications have explored divergent constructions what it means "to be Muslim" in Kyrgyzstan (2018) and examined controversies surrounding veiling and its implications for debates about Kyrgyz national identity (forthcoming). 

Dr. Artman's current research analyzes the geographies of Islamophobia and the "counter-jihad" movement in the United States and Europe.
